…mind and heart in God.

Boris Kustodiev Building a Monastery (1906)

“The aim of the spiritual life, to put it simply, is dwelling constantly with mind and heart in God. A spiritual person is one whose inner disposition is such that only God exists for him – he ‘disappears’ in God. Outward silence is merely an aid to inner silence with God.”

~St Theophan the Recluse

gem from Holy Theophany Orthodox Church’s Sunday Bulletin
